Winding down 2017… Welcoming 2018

A huge thanks to everybody out there for all the support over 2017. Lots of challenges over the course of this year, but your energy and encouragement have kept pushing me along –  so that’s a big gushy thanks from me to you!

With everything winding down now, it’s also about time I shared a bit about next year’s plans.

2018 will be a year of change, and I’m really excited to announce that in Feb I’ll be having my first solo show of paintings in quite a while. If you’ve been following my instagram (@seanedwhelan) there’s been plenty of shots of sketches and work in progress over the course of some 2 years. If you haven’t, you now know exactly where to get a preview of what to expect. If you’re in Melbourne for the opening on the 8th, it’d be great to see you there, but in the meantime, visit for more details.

Once that is all done and dusted, there will be some much overdue online spring cleaning. New site? I think so.

There will also be new illustration work with Dormilona, my friends over on the west coast of Oz, who consistently kick bottoms with their amazing wines, and an illustrated cover feature with a New York wine mag. So look out for all these updates in the first quarter.

Finally, hope you all have a great new year, happy holidays and I’ll see you in 2018.
